How Geico Military Discount Compares to USAA
In most states, Geico's overall military insurance premiums are comparable to those of USAA, an insurance company that caters to the U.S. military. However, Geico tends to be less expensive for veterans and those not deployed, while USAA offers better deals to active military, especially members on deployment.
For example, Geico's emergency deployment discount of 25% applies only on deployments to imminent danger zones. USAA’s deployment rates apply anywhere overseas. It’s a good idea to get a quote from each to determine which may be best for you. For more information on the differences between Geico and USAA check out WalletHub's Geico vs USAA comparison.
